Parallelograms, Rhombuses, Rectangles & Squares (oh my!)
Graphic Organizer

You Need: 1 piece of paper Scissors (remember your safety rules)
Pencil ruler

Step 1 Fold the paper in half one way, crease it, then open it back up
Do the same for the other direction

Step 2 Fold the long ends in toward the middle and keep them folded in

Step 3 Cut along the crease of the flaps to create 4 “doors”

On the doors Parallelogram: a quadrilateral with 2 pairs of parallel sides Rhombus: a parallelogram with 4 congruent sides Rectangle: a parallelogram with 4 congruent angles Square: a parallelogram that is a rhombus and a rectangle

Inside the flaps:

Parallelogram (left side):
Quadrilateral Opposite sides parallel Opposite sides congruent Opposite angles congruent Consecutive angles supplementary Diagonals bisect each other

Parallelogram (right side):

Rhombus (right side): Quadrilateral Opposite sides parallel
All sides congruent Opposite angles congruent Consecutive angles supplementary Diagonals bisect each other Diagonals are perpendicular

Rhombus (left side):

Rectangle (left side):
Quadrilateral Opposite sides parallel Opposite sides congruent All angles congruent Consecutive angles supplementary Diagonals bisect each other Diagonals are congruent

Rectangle (right side):
B D C AC = BD

Square (right side): Quadrilateral Opposite sides parallel
All sides congruent All angles congruent Consecutive angles supplementary Diagonals bisect each other Diagonals are congruent and perpendicular

Square (left side): A B AC = BD D C
